Thread: Pdf files
View Single Post
I mainly use OmniGraffle to annotate plots made with other programs (e.g., IDL) or to create figures that combine plots and images made elsewhere. I'm generally very pleased with what I can do with OmniGraffle, but it would be fantastic if OmniGraffle could parse PDF files so that the individual elements (e.g., plot labels, line styles, etc) could be edited with OmniGraffle. Since Quartz can parse PDF, perhaps this wouldn't be such a tall order?

I've seen, but not tried, the website that will transform EPS to OmniGraffle. And I know that I can edit PDF with Illustrator. But Illustrator is really overkill for my needs, and OmniGraffle is such an elegant program to work with.
